So a couple of months ago, when stenciling was first getting really popular, I saw a stencil in a Wal-Mart that I thought was really cute. And since I didn't have a specific project in mind & I wasn't willing to pay tons on a stencil, a $2 stencil from Wally World was a happy purchase.
Fast forward to a couple of weeks ago. Steph from Crafting in the Rain had me lined up to participate in her Make a Splash series, where she gives some crafters one crafty tool and has them create something with it. It just so happened that my crafty tool was stencils! I was stoked. And since I had some plain, boring white curtains hanging up in my room, I knew just what to do with them!
I am now a HUGE fan of stenciling! It just makes things prettier :)
Here are the supplies I started with, minus the curtains:
I didn't use anything to keep the stecil attached to the fabric. Once I started sponging it on, the stencil just kind of naturally stayed in place. It took all of nap time one day, but I think it was well worth it.
Here it is mid-project.
And the end result = LOVELY!!!
